    Interesting choices for Top 3.....
    Notre Dame only had one Rudy but Nebraska gets a new crop of Rudys every season

    For those of you who listen to the Bob and Tom show, they have been having fun all week with Roy's name. One of the people on the show is a huge Redskins fan and he has been saying "Heluuuuu" all week (as in Hellooooo). But they also have talked about his 3 touchdown game and have played radio clips of at least 2 of his TD's last Sunday.

    Helu had a heck of a great game against the Bears last weekend. I was rooting for the Bears of course, but I cheered for him every time he got the ball.

    By the way, my top three would have to be Rozier and Green for the top two. The third spot would be pretty tough. I don't want to give it to LP, but I think he probably would have to take the spot.

    leave the off field issues alone...let's just decide based on the field MERITS.

    I don't think Roy gave much thought to his answer because as #3 he picked "one of the Heisman winners," and except for the bowl game against Notre Dame, when Johnny played I-Back, only Rozier was a RB.

    His choice of Burkhead as #1 was impressive because it tells the kind of respect Rex got from his mates, as well as his completeness as a player.

    That being said, how could anyone fairly leave LP out of the top 3?

    He contends for the best running back in CFB history. He was in that class as a RB.

    Its no coincidence that the best running backs were from teams that had our best offensive lines. Give me a dominating OL and a good running back over a average OL and stud running back any day.

    LP's off-field issues kept him from being on the field for half his senior year, so I think they're at least a factor.

    what about other running backs that had injuries...no one is perfect.

    You mean half of his JUNIOR year. He left without a senior year.

    Correct, my mistake.

    Well, injuries are a factor too. My ranking would be Rozier, Phillips, Green, but there's a part of me that really wants to put Doug Dubose in third based on what I think he would have done in his senior season. Alas ....

    Yes, he didn't seem to know the history of RBs at Nebraska very much. Seemed caught off-guard by the question. They also asked for his favorites, not who he thought were the best. Of course he is going to choose guys he knows...he has seen their hard work first-hand.
